Joe Johnson hits game-winning buzzer-beater against Thunder (Video)
Do the Brooklyn Nets need a signature moment to give themselves a chance to turn their disappointing season around? If so, Joe Johnson may have provided it with his game-winning shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.
Johnson, who is one of the most clutch shooters in the NBA, hit an incredible off-balance shot as time expired to give the Nets a 95-93 win on the road. The fact that Serge Ibaka — one of the better defenders in the league — was in his face made the basket even more impressive.
Unfortunately, the win only improved Brooklyn to 11-21 on the season. It’s not too late to make a playoff push, but the Nets still have plenty of problems from their head coach right on down. If I was a Nets fan, I’d wait before getting too excited.
